As long as they keep eating up like 6 innings each start, Slowey had the Indians hitters looking so much. Our pitchers always seem to let 'em hit it.

Twins win another one, and the Twins haven't allowed a single run to the Indians yet, and Liriano shined in another 8 inning gem.

Record: 11-4
Games Remaining: 147

Even though the Indians scored a run Tuesday night, it looks like that's over. 8-1 Cleveland in the top of the eighth with Minnesota having three hits.

Well, I've been lazy, but after today's game, I'll update again.

After 6 series wins to start the season off, the Twins look good.

Record: 13-5
Games Remaining: 144

Thanks for picking up the slack Gopher, another strong outing by Liriano, looking excellent so far.

It "had" a great ERA. It was only a matter of time until it broke especially with Crain in there. Glad I didn't get to see it.

11-6 Twins lose tonight

Record: 14-7
Games Remaining: 141
Position in AL Central: 1st (2.5 GA)

I'm not worrying yet, we can't win 'em all. It's doubtful that we could continue to win at the clip that we're winning at. Let's take tomorrow's afternoon game and win 7 series in a row.

Oh I agree, it's just sad that what was a 6-4 game when I left to go run was an 11-6 game when I came back.

Yeah, I was refreshing on my blackberry at work, 6-1 lead dissipates to a 11-6 loss. Crain looked like crap. We need to shore up that 'pen if we want to go anywhere. I can see us being active this year. I think we know we have a good team. Nathan going down has really hurt us.

Nathan hasn't hurt us yet, Rauch has been very good. The issue tonight was just bad location on some pitches and the umps totally blowing the fact that Span made that catch in the 6th.

Just caught the video of it, it was a pretty bad call. It would be nice to have Rauch in the 6th, 7th, or 8th instead of the 9th is what I was trying to say. I think we may have to trade for a dominant reliever, or Mijares could get off the DL.

Why'd we spend 184 million on Mauer when we have Wilson Ramos?

Good god.

Ramos will be gone in the next couple of years traded for something else that we need I'm sure.

Twins win the rubber match this afternoon, in which Ramos had 4 hits and almost his first homer, but it sure is nice to have him to plug in there instead of Butera. We'll have to see what happens with him later.

Record: 16-9
Games Remaining: 137
Position in the AL Central: 1st (0.5 GA)

We start a pivotal series against the Tigers at Target Field tomorrow night! Let's go get 'em boys.

The Twins are good at developing catchers. AJ and Mauer are the two best, but some other guys have had careers that started in Ft. Myers, like Chad Moeller, Javy Valentin, Damien Miller. Ramos looks to be the next in line.

Ramos looks like he's made out of brick.

I think the real question surrounding Ramos is when will the Twins unveil Gate 44?
